Today, custom spa design requests have become a part and parcel of luxury home design construction. Homeowners look for new designs and concepts and want their builders to provide exclusive solutions that raise the level of luxury in their home setting, to the next level. In order to keep up with this increasing demand, a number of new and innovative spa products have been introduced on the market, such as:
- Integrated sound systems
- Custom-moulded seating
- Custom water-jet placements for optimum hydrotherapy
- Adjustable lighting
- Temperature control
- Remote/mobile control of all the above-mentioned functions
Aside from all these additions and accessories, there has been a sea change in the way outdoor residential space spaces are being designed as well. Here are some trends that emerged in 2016 that look like they will run strong in 2017 as well:
#1 Raised Perimeter-Overflow Spa
There is a distinct rise in the demand for this particular spa design. In this style the spa may either be attached to the spa pool or is a standalone option. It appears like the spa sits above the water; however, the fact is that the walls of the spa are set below the water level similar to how they are in an infinity pool. This allows the water to overflow over each side of the spa. When this design is combined with the right kind of lighting and materials such as glass tiles, they create a look and feel of luxury.
#2 Non-attached Spas
At times, homeowners want a luxury spa installation that’s segregated from the swimming pool area as this lends more privacy to the spa setting. Regardless of whether a spa has been added to fill a vast outdoor space or has been designed to fit into a more compact one, this type of non-attached spa with its separate waterfall installation, is a trend that’s here to stay.
#3 Integrated Spa Design
This type of design offers interesting options as the spa is integrated with the swimming pool. In most cases, this design isn’t easily noticeable from a distance. The spa installation flows seamlessly into the design of the larger pool which adds a stunningly, continuous surface of water that reflects the sky during the day and captures the light from underwater and poolscape lights after dark.
#4 Spas With Overflow-Into Pools
Having a water feature with flowing water installed on your property, is one way to add serenity and calm to your immediate surroundings. When you choose to get a swimming pool that has a raised spa in its design, it gives you the chance to include the audible & visual appeal of flowing water. In this design, the areas above the spa are designed as an open space; this becomes the spillway that allows the water from the spa to soothingly cascade into the pool it is attached to.
#5 Attached Raised Spa
This style of spa sits at an elevated point (6 to 18 inches) just above the swimming pool. However, this design is different from that of an integrated spa as the swimming pool & the spa appear as segregated entities.
